Coates Design Architects Seattle
Port Orchard, WA Architects and Building Designers
May 25, 2012
We've toured the residential and commercial projects created on Bainbridge Island by Coates Design, and have followed their work for years. Our office was in the same building, and we often stopped in to learn more about their projects. We've always been impressed by their great architectural sense of aesthetics, and their ability to create innovative work that blends well into the surroundings of the project location. Very professional, very pleasant and very accomplished.
William J Chester Architecture LLC
Port Orchard, WA Architects and Building Designers
November 10, 2015
On a ferry ride in Seattle, I was thumbing through a magazine when some photos of a landscape design caught my eye. After a few minutes my attention shifted to the amazing house behind it. We were looking for an architect for a Summer/Retirement home we wanted to build on three rural acres we owned on Vashon Island, WA. When I read the credits, I discovered that Bill Chester was based on nearby Bainbridge Island. I called Bill and we arranged for a brief Sunday morning, get acquainted conference call with my wife and I. Well, a twenty minute call turned into three hours of brainstorming with ideas flying! We hired Bill on the spot and never interviewed anyone else. Throughout the entire process, Bill listened to our ideas and looked at the scrap we had collected and came back with improvements on all of it. He is a seasoned professional that we were grateful to have, especially since we were trying some unusual ideas that needed to be thought out, planned and engineered properly. As absentee owners (our primary home is in Los Angeles) we felt very secure knowing Bill was on site to supervise the construction crew. To this day, we're still friends with the job supervisor, who treated the house he was building as if were his own. We could not be happier with our finished home. We've had zero problems of any kind in the four years since we moved in. The design draws lots of attention and was recently chosen for the cover of a new coffee table book on green architecture, "Leeding the Way" by E. Ashley Rooney. Very exciting! Bill was accurate and honest with the budget and always let us know in advance what some idea we had would cost to execute, so we could make an informed decision if we wanted to move forward. I would recommend Bill in a New York minute to anyone and we have. Construction went 3 months longer than we had hoped, primarily due to staff cut backs in the King County permit office and our out of the way location for inspectors to get to. Other than that, the nightmares that we were told would happen when we decided to build a house from scratch never came to pass. We attribute that to Bill and the care and planning he put in to our project.

Sketched up some ideas for our future home and got exactly what we were looking for. The drawings turned out great. Gabe was very easy to work with and supportive of all our ideas and little changes to make this our perfect forever home.. I would highly recommend him.
Don Larkin, Architect, AIA, PLLC
Port Orchard, WA Architects and Building Designers
September 6, 2012
We engaged the services of Don Larkin, Architect, to design our new custom home in Manchester, Washington. We selected Don after reviewing and interviewing several other architects because of his previous experience in construction, his design style, and his easy-going manner. We were not disappointed. We brought Don a conceptual layout, discussed with him our priorities -- needs, wants and desires -- and after a site visit, he flipped our concept 180 degrees which resulted in a far superior layout for the site. I guess that's why you hire a professional. His initial exterior design so captivated my wife and me by delivering on our tastes and styles that we hardly made changes to his exterior concept. Throughout the design process, Don brought us excellent ideas, and as we suggested changes or modifications, he was always good natured in dealing with our ignorances by pointing out why what we suggested would not work, but offering alternatives that blended our vision with reality. Once we settled on a design, he was there with us throughout the permitting process and the construction phase, making necessary or desired changes as requested. He has remained in contact after we completed construction to ensure we are satisfied with the home he designed based on our vision and our lifestyle. Throughout the process, both Don, and my wife and I learned a lot about the architectural design process. Don recognized some of our spatial visualization issues and developed some 3-D depictions of his 2-D drawings. These 3-D renderings helped tremendously in our ability to visualize the finished product, and to communicate with our contractor and trades people on the desired finished look. If Don does not offer these to you, I recommend that you ask him about them. They were an excellent aid in our design and build process. I absolutely and without hesitation commend and recommend Don Larkin for anyone who is interested in new or remodel construction architectural services. He listens to what you want, brings to you what he heard, and works with you to refine the product to meet your dreams. Don certainly delivered on our dream. Dave Pabst

Jeff Luth - Soldano Luth Architects
Port Orchard, WA Architects and Building Designers
December 3, 2013
My husband and I highly recommend Soldano Luth Architects. We have used them for two projects: a guest house in Seattle and, many years later, a house and guest house on a large parcel in Carmel, California that was completed in 2009. Jeff Luth and his staff are highly professional; they are both creative and thorough. They listen to their client and design a house the client wants. For example, in California we wanted an agricultural shed profile that utilized steel windows and doors, and exposed metal trusses. Jeff incorporated those elements into a design that fit perfectly into the landscape. Additionally, his siting considered all of the factors that are important in a location where view and climate management are major factors in the success of the project. Soldano Luth’s team paid enormous attention to detail. They produced models, drawings and documents that were approved expeditiously by both our community’s design review committee and the county in California. Throughout the project they continually produced precise drawings for our builder on the many details of the structures. The team was always available to travel to the site to oversee the project and answer contractors’ questions. The firm’s project management enabled us to keep control of costs and avoid change orders. From foundation to exquisite lighting this firm knows how to design a beautiful home. The finished projects in both cases were beautifully detailed inside and outside. Jeff produces honest architecture. Function follows a beautiful form. It is natural and warm and stands the test of time. Photographs of our homes are available on the website.
Michael Knowles, Architect
Port Orchard, WA Architects and Building Designers
April 24, 2013
Michael Knowles designed our home 10 years ago. We loved working with Michael, who grasped what we wanted within our first meeting. Michael is a consummate professional -- thorough, meticulous, responsive. He is highly creative and always came up with ideas and alternatives that surprised and delighted us. We worked closely during almost a year of design and planning plus 10 months of construction. It was consistently a pleasure to work with Michael, and the end result, as my husband once said, is a "sculpture we get to live in." We wish we could build something else with Michael!
